When it comes to delivering transfer news, it doesn’t come anymore reliable than Italian expert Gianluca Di Marzio.
You can also add his Sky Italy colleague Fabrizio Romano to that reliability.
So Chelsea fans can really start to get excited now about the arrival of Frank Lampard’s first Chelsea signing, Ajax winger Hakim Ziyech.
Well, I say arrival, but that obviously will not be until the summer physically. However, the deal is expected to be officially announced soon, with all agreements now in place.

The 26-year old Moroccan international is a very high profile player and will be a big signing for Chelsea, but for super low value.
The left-footed attacker has had a glowing career so far, and will look for that to really peak at Chelsea in the Premier League.
